Nelson Memorial Library needs your help!

Thanks to the commitment of Nelson County, the expansion of Nelson Memorial Library is well-underway.

The Grow Nelson Library community group is working diligently to secure funds to complete the project by providing books, computers, media equipment, and other items essential to creating a vibrant community hub.

The group is a little closer to reaching their $500,000 goal with The Perry Foundation’s generous award of a challenge grant of $100,000.

In order to receive the $100,000 from the Perry Foundation, Grow Nelson Library must raise $150,000 by July 2020, and is asking for the community’s support to make this happen. Every donation counts!

Donations are tax exempt and can be made at http://www.grownelsonlibrary.org, dropped off at the Nelson Memorial Library, or by check to the Nelson Memorial Library Fund (Nelson Memorial Library, P O Box 321, Lovingston, Virginia 22949).
